The trouble with greens: A breakthrough!

October
18

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about how we were having trouble getting greens back into Rafael’s diet.

This week, a modicum of success: Green bell peppers.

Part of it, like anything with children, is the sales job.peppers-2.jpg

The day before Rafael tried the bell pepper for the first time, my husband talked it up. And told Rafael he couldn’t have it until the next day. We had a green bell pepper, but Rafael wasn’t allowed to eat it until the next day.

He really looked forward to trying it, with “special dipping sauce,” which was a creamy Caesar dressing we buy that has very little sugar in it.

Rafael enjoyed it a lot, calling it a cross between celery and broccoli.

He loves to eat celery with his mommy, with peanut butter on it (we buy the Costco Kirkland brand, which is nothing but crushed peanuts, no added sugar at all). He hasn’t really gotten into eating broccoli, even though he likes the idea of broccoli.

I loved the description, though.
